Action Research as a Guide to Consultation and School Change.
Marchel, Carol A.; Takeda, Akenori
Recent changes in schools have caused changes in the consultation roles for school psychologists. Action research serves as a guide for an expanded school psychology consultation role. Although action research has been used in various fields, including teacher development and education, adult education, and agriculture, it has seldom been applied in school consultation models familiar to school psychologists. Action research serves as a useful guide for individual consultation with teachers as well as for collaborative work aimed at school change. A literature review is included on school consultation and action research. It presents the proposed use of action research in consultation and discusses its application in school settings.
